    Default Leo Green suing SF

    An ex-IRA hunger striker and formerly one of Sinn Féin’s most senior advisers is taking a discrimination and unfair dismissal case against the party.

    Leo Green, who surprisingly left his post as Sinn Féin’s political director at Stormont in February is suing his party on a number of grounds, the North’s Fair Employment Tribunal has confirmed.

    Mr Green, who spent 83 days fasting in the 1980 hunger strike, is claiming discrimination for holding a political opinion, unfair dismissal and breach of contract.

    Green was a very significant figure in SF and basically ran the show for them in Stormont

    So much for the rock solid internal discipline of Sinn Fein.

    What do you make of this ?

    His disagreement with Sinn Féin is also being linked to claims by First Minister Peter Robinson last week that Sinn Féin was placing its electoral ambitions in the South ahead of its interests in the North

    .
    I reckon that's nonsense personally.

    As for the real reason... I have no idea but I'm sure we'll hear soon enough.

    This case was ultimately settled in August of 2014. (I hate threads like this without a conclusion )

    Sinn Féin in a statement said: “We can confirm that the issues between Leo Green and Sinn Féin have been resolved amicably on terms which are confidential to both parties. This matter is now concluded.”
